I don't call myself a feminist, I call myself a humanist. While I believe in equal rights which is the original premise of feminism, I don't like the direction much of feminism is going. It is absolutely not true that women are not aggressive. While I don't have any personal knowledge of female physical violence I am very aware that women are capable of being bullies and they do it to other females using psychological tactics more often than physical violence, although I have my own experiences with female physical violence too.
I have no belief whatsoever that men are in any way inferior to women or that men should be more like women. That is ridiculous. Interesting video. Thanks for starting up an interesting topic.

Yeah, I'm gonna be honest. Those radical type of feminist annoy the crap out of me.
They give feminism a bad name in the public.
Just look at the definition and stick to that. Every group has its crazy radicals. We shouldn't be defined by them.

That said one of the biggest divides between men and women being equal in terms of violence is sexual violence. Rape is not something typically perpetuated by women.
And while men can and do get raped, a woman is way more likely to have it happen to her. About 10% of sexual assaults are done by men to men, the other 90% are done by men to women.
Rape is something that women always have to fear from men, and is one area were we can never be equal until we can get the rate of rape to lower. Women can't do this on our own (clearly), men have to actively try and stop this as well. And as long as:

1 in 12 male students surveyed had committed acts that met the legal definition of rape.
33% of males surveyed said that they would commit rape if they could escape detection.
25% of men surveyed believed that rape was acceptable if: the woman asks the man out; or the man pays for the date; or the woman goes back to the man's room after the date.

that's clearly not going to happen because we as a society are obviously doing something wrong if that many people think rape is ever okay.

Oh, I see what you mean about changing the wording.
My gosh it's amazing how just a few words can say the same thing, but in a way that promotes discussion. I"m really impressed!

That's fair enough.
I was much more a fan of Tenesee Claflin, though. :)

I changed some of my wording. I like Susan B Anthony, not Gloria Allred.

lol Good lord PT!
Well, I can agree with this with the caveat you mentioned in an earlier conversation.
The kind of feminism represented above has very little to do with the origins of feminism, nor does it represent all, or even most of feminism today, just the loud aspect of it.
It's the same for every group. People who advocate for animal welfare have PETA, Christians have the WBC, Muslims have AlQueda, Homosexuals have the drama queens, Atheists have militant atheists, teenagers have twilight fans...

Thank you for providing the citations, but I'm sorry, I cannot accept these numbers. The idea that 1/3 of men condone rape is ridiculous on its face. What sort of animals do you think men are? Besides, what do hypothetical numbers even tell us? In reality, they mean nothing. These numbers do not represent any actions that took place whatsoever.

In terms of domestic violence, which is what this video is concerned with, women are just as likely to abuse men. In fact, they're often the first to raise their hand in anger. The idea that women are just as likely to hit a man can be proven statistically and is a measure of actual happenings in real world cases, not the product of clever phrasing and loaded questions that deal in hypothetical scenarios. They are not comparable.

The 33% was originally found during: Malamuth, N.M. (1986). Predictors of Natural Sexual Aggression. Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, 50, 953-962.

The 25% one during: Muehlenhard, C.L., Friedman, D.E. & Thomas, C.M. (1985). Is Date Rape Justifiable? Psychology of Women Quarterly, 9, 297-310

Both were reconfirmed to be the same percentage during the 2005 National Studies Of College Women, which is why it specifies 'males surveyed' because they were colleges men and the stat doesn't not necessarily hold true outside of the college setting.

Hope that helped! :)

I'd like to see where you got those statistics. I'm not buying that 1/3 of men would commit rape if they could get away with it. Sounds like some more "femstats"

I am very much for equality. This video explains how equality is not taking place.

No. Men and woman are equal. Different but equal.
And it's sad that you think so lowly of feminists.
I'm a feminist and am a part of a feminist organization.
We have never nor would we ever seek to demean men, for goodness sakes we have men in our organization. The one thing we work for is to end sexual violence in our area. We run a women's shelter and help make sure survivors are treated with respect and that they get the care they need.
Just because someone is/claims to be a feminists doesn't mean that all of their beliefs are those of all feminists.
Here's what feminist means.

feminism |ˈfeməˌnizəm| noun
the advocacy of women's rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.

Tough one for me as my cosmic beliefs have men and women equal. But one gender can certainly be prone towards "gender specific" behavior and violence is a good example. Women ARE more violent. I believe it's because of the female instinct to protect their young. In humans, that has affected the power of reason and something, well, snaps. You see it on COPS all the time.
It's a fact that women invented bondage, sadism, rough, kinky ***, and led the way to the development of the atomic bomb. Now we know why.

OK. drill me a new one!

Second-wave, thank you. I knew there was a term for it but I could not remember. When I read "second-wave" it gave me horrid flashbacks of powerpoint presentations by an angry feminist professor I once had. haha

Thank you for your thoughtful comments. The genders are equal, but this does not mean our outcomes are equal. We both have our strengths and weaknesses.

You have no idea just how much female on male abuse I've seen and how afraid the guys are to report it because they know no one will believe them.

Even I'm violent, but I just like to see people I hate in pain. Mostly other women though.

I believe the feminism you're talking about is called second-wave.
I hate this brand of feminism and yes, if you hate it, you're considered to be unfair to women. Even if you're a woman.
I hate the term anyways, I don't like how it singles out the female ***, that's not equal at all.

Men and women each have their own strengths and weaknesses. I believe there are somethings men can do, women can't do, and vice versa. Arguing the general, not the exception.
I do not base things off my gender. That would stupid. I'm not going to side with women just because I am a woman. Typically I find a lot of women these days to be hateful, bitchy, and unintelligent. Not 100%, mind you, but a lot. As for men, they're not free from it either, plenty of people these days are stupid as the result of second-wave feminism.

Women got equality from the first-wave, the second-wave is only "gimme more". At first it was "treat us equal" now it's "treat us better, but still call it equal".

I do not condone domestic violence of any sort, but maybe that's why Papa Grizzly doesn't stick around.
